Research - Antimicrobial Resistance


Center for Antimicrobial Resistance and Epidemiology (CARE)

Starting with studies by a single investigator in the 1980's at the Cleveland VAMC, the Center for Antimicrobial Resistance and Epidemiology (CARE) program has evolved to include five faculty in the VA Research Service in approximately 5,000 sq. ft of lab space. The focus of research at the VA centers on the problems of antimicrobial resistance, bacterial pathogenesis, and mycobacteriology.
